Eily’s Report – 8th March

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

 Last Monday when you looked out at the lovely bright sunny day you’d be forgiven for thinking that it warm  too, but warm it is not. That lively wind is taking with it wafts of icy cold air and a drop of rain too which would send you searching for the last button or inch of zip in the your coat. But the Artic conditions didn’t deter the hardy ones from taking to our hills and tracks on Sunday. A large crowd climbed Clara while others who would normally go a mile or two, doubled their task on Sunday buoyed up by the beautiful conditions and scenery. The forecast is giving a yellow warning of a cold spell to continue for the next couple of days, so it would be a good idea to keep all your winter woollies close at hand. But we are hardly to be pitied when we see what is happening to our fellow man in Ukraine. A monster has been released and we can only pray that God will give the free world a way to stop him.
